Summary
Christoph Reiß considers the effects of strategic patents on competition in a number of game-theoretic models. He focuses on deterrence strategies and endogenous entry in asymmetric markets and on cumulative complementary patents, showing that strategic patents can – under certain conditions – have positive effects on welfare.
